Emily Hendrickson: Lady Sara's Scheme
June 1989 is the publication date for Lady Sara's Scheme by Emily Hendrickson. Lady Sara needed to choose a husband, but she crosses Myles Fenwick, Earl of St. Quinton, off her list of eligibles. However, the path of true love doesn't always go smoothly, as Lady Sara is about to find out!
This is a pretty cover by Allan Kass. We see our heroine in an elegant yellow gown and sapphire jewels, walking through a ballroom with the hero, who is also very splendidly dressed. Her gown is low cut and trimmed with lace with an under dress that starts at the side instead of the middle. I like that her dress blends in with the hero's gold waistcoat. The violets she carries are echoed in her hair. Note the hero's high collared shirt and gold fob!
